Safety and General Information
• Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if driving
conditions so require.
• FOR VEHICLES WITH AN AIR BAG
Do not place a portable radio in the area over an air bag or in the air bag
deployment area. Air bags inflate with great force. If a portable radio is placed in
the air bag deployment area and the air bag inflates, the radio may be propelled
with great force and cause serious injury to occupants of the vehicle.
• POTENTIALLY EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES
Turn off your radio prior to entering any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere, unless it is a radio type especially qualified for use in such areas as
“Intrinsically Safe.” Do not remove, install, or charge batteries in such areas.
Sparks in a potentially explosive atmosphere can cause an explosion or fire
resulting in bodily injury or even death.
Note: The areas with potentially explosive atmospheres referred to above include
fueling areas such as below decks on boats, fuel or chemical transfer or
storage facilities, areas where the air contains chemicals or particles, such
as grain, dust or metal powders, and any other area where you would
normally be advised to turn off your vehicle engine. Areas with potentially
explosive atmospheres are often but not always posted.
